A "Do Not Track" Internet Registry? Anonymous Internet Browsing

As a public service, those who wish to avoid being tracked on the Internet by cookies and other malware may wish to check out Mozilla Firefox, which I first heard about way back in 2004.  It is profiled this morning in the Wall Street Journal.

The article also speculates as to how a so-called "do not track" registry might work.  When that legislation comes out, we expect there will be flaws -- "trap doors" if you prefer that nomenclature.  The existence of such a registry, into which your information would have to be provided, by itself presents its own potential threat.  Any system can be penetrated. 

In essence, your privacy may be secure (as promised); however, that safety, and your peace of mind, depend on the fidelity of others to the law.
